Spring Mini-Album cover

I love those simple plastic albums you can get for a dollar at most stores. They measure 4x6 and hold about 30 pictures. What I love most about them is that you can recover the inserts that make they put into the cover. Often these are big giant flowers or baby images. These are the albums I use as gifts for the cast of my play and I am in the process of working on those right now, but I bought extra and decided to make one as a small gift for a friend.

I recovered the hard cover inserts with my ATG gun. I than cut several things out with my Cricut to add to this new cover. I cut the back frame using Bloom, the flowers are from Create A Critter and the wording is off of Gypsy Wanderings. Put that all together and you have a fresh spring album to share with a friend.

Happy Thursdays. Tonight I will select a winner of the Cricut Markers.You can still post your comment HERE. I will pick the winner after 8PM CDT and post it first thing tomorrow. Thanks again for all your comments.
